Linux / Unix

We recommend using the program xfreerdp . If it is not included in the user's Linux distribution, it can be translated from the source code from the project page freerdp or use pre-packaged packages, for example from ap. You can then connect with a command xfreerdp -d NTFI -u your_login (the other program switches the program when it starts up xfreerdp without parameters).

The alternative is rdesktop : rdesktop -d NTFI -u your_login . The window size is set by the switch -g . You can switch to fullscreen by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Enter.


Project users MacPorts they can easily install the FreeRDP command port install freerdp and then use the command in the terminal /opt/local/bin/xfreerdp -d NTFI -u your_login , as described in U.S. Pat section for Linux .

Another option is to install Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac . After starting, you need to click New and enter a new name in the new window , as a User name ntfi\your_login and as Connection name, e.g. ate , close the window and double-click the newly created item under My Desktops .

Sign in to the Terminal Server

After a successful connection, you are prompted for a password. This can be changed / set to Faculty administration .

Please ignore any "Restart your computer to finish installing updates" message. We were unable to set up to keep track of it, while maintaining the available updates automatically, but if the restart is needed, the terminal server does not restart itself.

Logout / Disconnection from the Terminal Server

When you have finished working on the server, you must log off by running the script odhlášení uživatele that you find on the desktop. The session is not always logged out, the connection can only be interrupted by terminating the client when the running application runs on the server and the interrupted operation can continue after another connection. Interrupted sessions are stored for up to two days on the server, then the server terminates.

Even if you just disconnect, we recommend that you save all work and open documents because if nobody is active on the server, it can be restarted to complete the installation of updates, although we try to make such restarts to the least possible effect.

Connect a Unix home directory

The directory automatically connects as a disk Z: , or this can be used instructions .


Printers available from the client PC can be used to print if their use is enabled when the client is started (under Windows Options → Local Resources → Printers ). Printers will then be available as standard in the Devices and Printers folder.

For printing on a faculty network printer directly from the server ate it is necessary to add the printer first by running the installer available for each printer printer table win in the column on the right.
